Stuart Watkins, Vice President of ASPS, recently presented a poetry program to members of an Arizona State Poetry Society chapter. Marlene Little of the Sun City Chapter of ASPS invited Stuart to present a program on, "The Book I Am Going to Write."
It was a fantastic success.
The poets and writers in attendence wrote poems that brought tears to the eyes of many in the group. They all went home with a note pad to continue their writes about a key that opened up memories and things from their past, so they could continue, or start, the book they are "Going to Write." The group of writers from the Sun City Chapter shared some fantastic writes.
Stuart hopes that some of the wonderful, warm writes that came form his presentation will result in poems being published, or a book being started and fininshed, before the end of 2018!

There will be an opportunity to purchase additional copies of this issue and we will post a notice on the ASPS website as soon as that capability is available. Until then, enjoy your 2017 Sandcutters!
